Cantilever Brakes

Cantilever and V-brake systems are used on bikes where rim brakes are needed but where more stopping power, greater mud clearance and better wet weather performance is required over calliper brakes. Standard equipment on cyclocross bikes, cantilever brakes are solid performers, although their greatest asset is in their huge mud clearance. Cantilever brake design has come a long way from the good ole days of cyclocross and the dawn of MTB, but V-brake (otherwise known as linear pull brake) systems rival or better them in terms of pure performance - they're a great choice for touring and commuting bikes where a reliable, low-maintenance brake set is required.
